thanks for the reply. now i need to decide if i want to spend ~$150 and a few hours of a weekend to repair a ~10 year old washer that cost less than $400 when new. maybe i'll just wait it out and see how long the transmission holds up.

Transmission is not serviceable so go ahead and replace it. The tub nut can be difficult to remove. It is reverse threaded and we generally use a special spanner wrench and small sledge hammer to get it loose. Sometimes we have to cut the nut off. Fairly easy with a dremel tool as it's just made of aluminum. So go ahead and get a new nut while your at it. I would remove the motor before banging on that tub nut as all that banging can damage the switch in the motor, seen it happen more than once.

When I bought my house 5 years ago it came with a GE Profile top load washer / dryer set. They have been working well since, but now I think I am about to have a problem. After running a load (washer still works fine), the washer has a heavy odor of gear lube. I pulled the front panel off last night and there is oil slung all around the innards of the washer below the tub. So I have a few questions.

Do these little transmissions ever develop repairable leaks? Or should I just order a new transmission and swap it out? Are there any other parts I should order with it, such as seals, bearings or any other hardware? Are there any special tools required that would prevent this from being a DIY project?

thanks for any help
